For those of you who follow my work, you may have noticed that I'm doing more and more talks about metadata. Specifically, I did my latest workshop online for the Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS membership required). I have an older—and less informational version—from last year on the Photo Grafix YouTube channel (video below the article).
I select all of the scans of their homework and apply top-level keywords, such as:
Name of child (first name)
General subject (example: Science)
Specific subject (example: Geology)
Page number (if applicable)
Using Adobe Photoshop Bridge and the Keywords metadata field, I just plug these into the Keywords panel and they all show up as I type. It's really quite convenient
